Jumbos look ready to roll again this year

Tufts looks to build on its improved offensive performances last year, the first season after moving from a 4–2–3–1 to a 3–5–2 formation. In doing so, the team improved from a 6–8–2 record in 2015 to 7–6–3 in 2016, and in the process of doing so, scored 24 goals, up 10 from 2015, while remaining solid […]


Jumbos, once the underdogs, gear up for a season in the spotlight

The 2016 Div. III National Champions will be a team to watch this season after winning their second national title in three years — the first came in 2014.  Tufts entered the NCAA tournament unranked last season, and by the end was ranked No. 1 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll. Coach Joshua Shapiro and […]

Op-Ed: Part-time faculty deserve a fair contract

The Tufts Part-time Faculty Union met with the university several times this past spring and summer to negotiate a follow-up to our first contract, signed in 2014.

This incredibly high tuition price is more than just intimidating — it undermines the culture of diversity and accessibility that Tufts strives to promote. Campus movements like #HaltTheHike have highlighted the difficulties associated with this expense, especially when it comes coupled with […]


Op-ed: Houston Strong

When it rains a year’s worth in 48 hours, you don’t mop the floors, drain the streets, put on rubber boots and get on with your life. If you’re unlucky, you spend a week ripping out damp carpet, prying up rotten wood floors and tearing off musty drywall. You toss away furniture, memorabilia and memories because […]


Grizzly Bear makes exciting return with fifth studio album ‘Painted Ruins’

It would be dramatic to declare indie music dead, but the genre certainly isn’t as culturally relevant as it was ten years ago. Once disregarded by the elite, ‘educated’ crowd of music critics and twenty-somethings, genres like hip-hop and house have critically and commercially taken center stage thanks to artists like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, […]


2017 VMAs are equally praiseworthy, cringeworthy

The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) had a tough road ahead of them going into this year’s show. First, they selected Katy Perry to host, because apparently producers forgot to ask a single person their opinion of Katy Perry this past year. Then, the show was slated to air at the same time as the season […]
